this year. as my colleague from nevada also pointed out, we have a very broken immigration system. there's almost uniform agreement across the aisle about that fact. there's been a failure to bring a meaningful piece of immigration reform legislation to the floor of the house of representatives. despite the overwhelming demand for action by the american people. now, we all agree, as the c.b.c. indicated earlier this year, in february, when we took to the floor to talk about the need to address the issue of the broken immigration system, that something needs to be done. and there really are only three possible options. one, we've got mass deportation of the 11 million undocumented individuals who are in this country. that's option number one. option number two is the status quo. just leave the broken immigration system in place. option number three is meaningful, comprehensive immigration reform with a tough but fair pathway toward citizenship. mass deportation is impractical. the status quo is unacceptable. comprehensive immigration reform is the right thing to do for this country, for t

their hands and to fix our broken immigration system. mr. speaker, last summer republicans and democrats in the senate came together and passed comprehensive immigration reform with a strong bipartisan vote, a vote of 68 to 32. 68-32. that's like a superduper majority. in fact, one poll last month showed that 63% of americans, 2/3 of americans, support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. business leaders, chambers of commerce, labor unions, faith groups, immigrant families, law enforcement officials, and americans of every race, creed, color, and ethnicity all across our country applauded our senators for reaching across the aisle. for many it really gave hope and belief in our government that we are still capable of putting aside political posturing and to build consensus around the difficult issues that face our country. but today as i speak americans are asking, what happened? they are confused as to why the house of representatives can't do the same thing that the senate did and pass immigration reform. they are even more confused as to why the house can't even dignify

hungry. and as an immigrant coming into this country, i was, you know, i had this image that there would be no hunger and this country because, you know, it is the wealthiest country in the world. and it is, ironic that in the wealthiest country in the world and one of the wealthiest cities in the world, san francisco, that there are people, children, families, seniors, who every day, go to bed hungry. and i think that it is really sad, that that is the reality it, for so many people in san francisco. that is why i think that this hearing is so important. and you know, it is around the time of the holidays that perhaps some of these issues have more resonance for folks. but i think that this is really important, we picked up the examiner today and the front page of the examiner today was housing cost and rents and those top concerns for san franciscans and you know that there is a sense of people are being displaced. but, i think that we are forgetting that even basic things like putting the food on the table is something that many people are not able to do. and so, i think that we have

2014 budget. the farm bill. and immigration reform. reaching across the aisle has become more and more difficult and principled compromise seems like a mountain too tall to climb. this morning, i have the honor of introducing two national leaders who can hopefully help shed some light on how our legislative colleagues in washington, d.c. and the white house might be able to come together and find solutions to our nation's critical problems. let me begin with governor huntsman. he began his public service as a staff assistant to ronald reagan. he has since served four u.s. presidents in critical roles, including u.s. ambassador to singapore, deputy assistant secretary of commerce for asia, u.s. trade ambassador and most recently, u.s. ambassador to china. twice elected as utah's governor, he brought about strong economic reforms, tripled the state's rainy day fund, and helped bring unemployment rates to historic lows. in his tenure, utah was named the best state in america and the best state in which to do business. he serves as co-chair of no labels with u.s. senator joe masden. it's w
from food to raise awareness of the need for a bipartisan remedy for our broken immigration -- immigration system. support for the fasters is growing. like many in the united states -- in the u.s. they want to find a solution for immigrant families living in this great country that they call home. we can all agree it's time to modernize our immigration laws. fixing what is broken will not be an easy task but it will bring benefits to our nation which can be strengthened and reinvigorated by those hardworking individuals. i encourage my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reach across one another, begin a conversation and resolve this issue. we can work together to secure our bordered and honor the rule of law while addressing the problems in our immigration system with solutions that reflect our american principles. thank you, mr. speaker, and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from california seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and
judge ruled on the immigration status of president obama's uncle. the uncle made no comments either. he was facing possible deportation back to kenya but the court ruled he will be allowed to stay here in the u.s. even though he's been living for almost 50 years illegally here in the u.s.. his record shows he arrived in this country on a student visa in 1963 and never left. despite being ordered to go back home in 1991. he became publicly known when he was arrested for drunk driving in 2011. >> i think this arrest in the long run is really good for him because now he got to stay and with a green card and become a citizen and get to retire in america. >> legal experts say the judge appeared to rule on this case strictly by the book. u.s. immigration policy allows immigrants to become permanent residents if they came to this country before 1972 and they have good moral character. >>> the richmond city council gave unanimous approval to smokers using electronic cigarettes in enclosed public spaces. e-cigarettes use batteries to heat a liquid that contains nicotine. supporters say they make
challenges whether fiscal, immigration, fixing the health care bill. whatever it is, american people want answers, solutions. you can play the party game, political fight, it ends up blowing up in your face. republicans if you look head to head suffer more of the criticism. that's just the fact and reality. >> the president has done divisive politics and deflection and some in your party have done race-baiting. you are right, chris, they want solutions. they don't want politics, they want policy. people are tired of living paycheck to paycheck losing their homes. some people can't get a job. >> how do we get there, angela? what do you do in washington? >> if you continue to have partisanship, you're going to have a lame duck president. i believe midterm elections, gop has a grand opportunity to reach out to those pop that have suffered the most. they can take over the house and senate if they do grassroots advocacy, if the tea party and party establishment would join as one we have a grand opportunity. >> chris, last word. >> a lot of this is going to fall on republicans come midterms, wh
immigrant groups in many of these countries. >> actually, with our common belief -- on income that is not actually right, in terms of child poverty the u.s. is around the average, among many countries, it has a more diverse population but even if you account for all of those factors, you know, to take vietnam a country that is very -- has poverty and still it comes out better than the average. so quality is a challenge, but you can actually see some countries very good at moderating inequality and very good at helping disadvantaged students actually to excel, you see it in asia and sipping pore and japan, you see it in northern europe where you have children coming out of poverty, and the education system then assures those children get the best educational opportunities. >> these numbers are inevitably pounced upon by advocates of all kinds, right? once we know the .. results of the tests, can we therefore say policy x is the right way to go? policy y for any particular country? and i am thinking specifically of the u.s. here. we have these -- we have all kinds of discussi
plated of america the beautiful and the immigration officer said it will she was not what it is which is the star spangled banner, but i'm afraid that's one wrong. you've only got nine more chances. a distinct possibility vimy denied permission. and then was one man. complicated story helicon about. they have not talked to people to take the oath on the after deck of the u.s.s. constitution which is this wonderful sailing vessel, the oldest commission water should actually in the world. nelson's victory. but this one does. so the of was performed on independence day 2011 during a hot day. it was just magical an incredibly moving paid have to say. i've never seen an immigration ceremony, all people who suddenly were free to do with their waste. and they can vote. they had no fear of arrest. all of it. it was wonderful. the judges on the end was as remarkable woman who has now become a great personal friend. i have lunch with her. she is called marion bolar. she was the judge at the moment in charge of the boston america to the boston marathon bombing case. when that yemen will cut she
of the problems with japan, for example, it doesn't take immigrants. so they don't attract the world's smallest individuals like we still do, although we're trying to keep them out. you agree with bret? >> you know, i really don't. let me give you two examples that's not really my example. it's their examples. switzerland and lick ken stein, this is what came out of these two countries. their administrators said, look, we are life specks in the world economy. we are just a teeny little country and we understand that we have to be better than most if we're going to compete. so what both of those countries have done is make the concerted effort to emphasize mathematics instruction. they take upwards of eight hours of math a week. and they have innovative program to teach it. they understand that their kids are going to have to know this stuff. they drill them. they discipline them and they succeed. it's not rocket science. and i think if our schools understood that they were in the same competitive pool that we would try to do the same sort of innovation and i will say one more thing. if the teac
or smaller things? >> the first thing i would actually like to see in congress is comprehensive immigration reform. i mean, if you look at what the senate did, there is a path there that a lot of people compromised on to create a path to citizenship plus ways of making sure that we take people out of the shadows, we grow our economy, and we make sure our borders are secure. and so first and foremost, the house of representatives needs to focus on that. and i was part of the fast for families yesterday. i have been arrested on the whole process of trying to get to immigration reform and whatnot. in terms of education, this is an issue. pre-k is an issue about showing whether results actually really matter and what the research actually really matters or whether the congress lives in an evidence-free zone. we have seen pre-k actually works to help level the playing field. the president has put a bill out there. the house of representatives actually have a bipartisan bill, that aligns in the house of representatives and the senate, the miller-harkin bill, that has two republicans from new york
policy areas such as immigration. really a key issue here. and unemployment rates as well. that's 2% above the national average. so, you know, to be fair, some of this, by the way, goes with the territory. some of the concern comes along with the obama administration. he's well into his second term. you know, for many he doesn't seem to have that zip, the spark he had during the first term. >> politics, there's always a string attached. the implications down the road, we'll look at the midterm elections next year and, of course, 2016. >> yeah, there could be big ones. the 2014 midterm elections could be costly for the democrats here, especially in state legislative races where you may remember they'll try to hold on to the very precious 2/3 majority which is neutralized republicans. also, with less enthusiasm among key constituencies, there will be a few congressional seats in play in northern california as well, like jerry mcnerney and john garamendi come to mind. critical seats for those folks. then there's the 2016 presidential election. the big one. with these numbers, republica
entire categories of the law, whether it be immigration, marijuana, mandatory minimum, the aca, what is the remedy for the legislative branch. >> the next recourse, the word that we don't like to say. >> we've also talked about the i word, impeachment, which i don't think would get past the senate in the current climate. am i missing anything? is there anything else we can do? >> there's the guy. how, i think i'm watching buffalo bob and the peanut gallery. ip atoo old not to remember that stuff. but let me ask you this. that guy, let's not forget his providence. he was the guy on this show not too long ago who said i will not say the president was legitimately elected president. i gave him three shots at that baby, and he wouldn't do it. he's also illegitimate. i don't know if you can impeach a guy that was not there legitimately. >> and he is on record now saying that the house would vote to impeach this president if they were allowed to have this vote, and he said what else can we do? what's our remedy? well, there really isn't one. so they can have one of these show hearing. yeah
-care or immigration and if so, when? >> the answer to the question of when is for the last two years the president has put on the table of very aggressive jobs bill that would invest in our infrastructure, roads and bridges, a human capital to make sure people have skills they need to succeed, immigration reform is a job creator passing immigration reform. amazing to me how much better we could be doing if we could make sure we provide certainty in washington rather than manufactured crises. liz: the federal reserve watch you guys, they watch this number and tied it when they might taper or hike interest rates to the unemployment rates which thankfully people would say happily enough kicked down 0.3% to 7.zero. their level is 6.5. one might argue we are not exactly within spitting distance but close enough. how closely do you watch what the fed is doing? they are watching what the labor department and these numbers do. >> we watch with great interest but also respect the independence of the fed and they will make whatever decisions they make along the time lines that they make them. our focus is what
's unilaterally ignoring immigration laws in many cases. >> let me bring in democratic strategist keith boykin and republican strategist, season d -- susan del percio. let me play a little more. >> we also talked about the "i" word, impeachment, which again i don't think would get past the senate in the current climate. am i missing anything? >> maybe the implication there being, susan, that it would get through the house. what are they trying to accomplish? most of these members of congress, it's not like they're in some district where they're threatened. it's not going to happen. it's ridiculous from a legal perspective. so what are they doing? >> well, it's like 2007-2008 all over again. dennis kucinich, which could step in for that exotic member of congress that they refer to as a republican in today's story by dana milbank did the same exact thing. they had a list of 35 impeachable things they wanted to charge president obama with. the congress did sending it to the judiciary committee. here's what's important. nancy pelosi as speaker decided not to bring it forward because she knew there
's the incural culture or better immigration whether it's capital willing to invest and still enough of a production, you know, platform that if we're smart in this post recession environment we'll won't go back to the economy we'll move forward. i'm bullish about this and this region is rich in small batch and boutique on up to advanced >> technology will have a role in all of that as well. if you see this company 3-d technology for example, willing regulation in his the way we looked engineering systems because you could see it. auto desk is growing rapidly in san francisco they just opened up another portion of their work on pier 9. we're all talking about advanced manufacturing >> no longer have the machines but the machines are operating with an ipad and your reading out precision cutting everybody from chocolates to clothing to manufactured products so extension is going to play a big thing in manufacturing. >> if you're joining us think on the radio we're talking about economic growth and we have ed lee mayor of san francisco and the bruce cats from the washington area. let
a group demanding immigration reform through fasting. kennedy is one of six activists who will replace the current members of fast for families. the group has spent the last 22 days on them all consuming nothing but water and fruit juice. toy said they are too weak continue. >> concerns over voting equipment used in last month election in virginia. at a meeting in richmond, the state board of elections said equipment was outdated. said it charles judd more uniform process would make counting ballots more efficient. less than 24 hours after announcing his reelection campaign, d.c. mayor vincent gray's lashing out. this comes as the investigation into his 2010 campaign remains under federal investigation. sam ford is at the wilson building with more. is so upset. >> when the mayor announced yesterday he said it took him so long because he was waiting to see what the u.s. attorney was going to do. with that investigation going on and no end in sight, gray jumped into the race but today, he seemed on the defensive as reporters peppered him with questions about the scandal involved -- evil
